What is your role in the Center for Student Ethics and Standards?

As an Assistant Director for Community Standards, I meet with students who are alleged to have violated University policy. Typically these conversations involve violations related to alcohol, drugs, and physical or sexual violence.

I also coordinate the Intergroup Dialogue Program including co-teaching an Intergroup Dialogue course (EDHI 230), as well as coordinate and teach a course for the Women's Track of Project Discovery.

How long have your worked at UVM?

I have worked at UVM for a total of 7 years, off and on since 1997. I was a graduate student for two years, came back to work professionally for two years, and came back again in 2009.

What is your favorite place on campus to grab lunch and why?

Who's paying?! Although, I try to pack my lunch as often as possible, I do enjoy New World Tortilla and Pam's Deli cart.

What is your best advice for a current UVM student?

Take an active role in your education. Get to know your professors and go to office hours. Ask for help when you need it. Get to know your resources and staff who can support you in being successful at UVM. Get involved in student organizations, leadership, volunteer work, and other opportunities to engage fully in your college experience. Study abroad. Take advantage of the outdoors and all Vermont has to offer.

What is your favorite past time?

I love being outdoors and going for walks/hikes. On quieter days, I like watching movies and playing games.
